Cubelock still? With nothing new?
First game was against Voidlock and they got the weapon out... pretty smooth win on my part! Hoping this will be my supplement to Secret Mage from last season!
AoE, early-turn big minions, card draw, health restoration, big taunt minions, big charge minions, resurrection of big taunt and big charge minions... I refuse to run that bullshit and have since voidlords were first cubed. That deck can eat a bowl of dicks.
It's a gamble. I didn't get any legendaries and received about 1500 dust.
I just crafted the stuff needed (two rares) to start playing Mage for the first time outside of fighting the Innkeeper! Had a Legend player who I encountered in a Collegiate Tournament tell me I needed to understand this hero better to become a better player, so here I am.
Who wants to give a brand new Mage player some crucial tips/advice on how to play something like this? Been playin HS since May and have only reached Rank 7!
this is some next level salty thread hidden under the subterfuge of skill. HS has long since dropped skill. u want a skilled deck, then go to Wild and play Dead Mans Hand Warrior Mill deck. thats skill my friend, the rest is just random young adults and youngsters trying to discuss dick sizes.
You will play Dead Mans Hand Warrior and that will be the end of it.
Just because a deck in OP doesn't mean it lacks decisions - compared with power mid range decks of the past like secret paladin, secret mage is actually pretty fun. But what can you do, folks gonna hate whatever is beating them at the time, and forget everything else.
I love playing Wild games because it really isn't the same 5 decks you encounter in Standard.
No, in Wild you just get to lose in new, surprising ways if you don't have a huge collection and have been playing since Beta.
You are never going to draw tons of people into the mode. Getting enough cards for standard is already a challenge for many.
Since getting to legend means getting over 50% winrate against other players, no not everyone can get to legend. That would mean that everyone could get over 50% winrate and that is obviously not possible because for every win there must be a lossYou are forgetting the fact that a good amount of your opponents at the rank 1 and 2 are actually Legend players already, you are not necessarily removing a win from another playing trying to reach legend, you remove a win from a player that already reached legend and can't be bumped down.
A.bit expensive on the dust side but I've been doing well with this list. Even used it in the brawl! I'm not sure about zihi but theres been some games where it straight up.won for me.

I'm really curious as to how people have been building rush warrior this expansion. I've been laddering with my own version of rush and have really enjoyed it, particularly in the aggro or midrange matchups, but I find it frustrating playing rush minions on an empty board in the control matchups. Thankfully, most people are playing fairly interactive decks so it leads to some nice matchups.
My current deck has been a mix between a whirlwind/self-damage deck and a rush core. Blood Razor and Frothing Berserker are really good tools that seem to combine well with several rush minions like Redband Wasp and Muck Hunter, and I always seem to have some nice targets for my WW effects. I've tooled my deck toward more aggressive starts and with a good Frothing play can close some games out by T6 or T7, but I've added some bigger backbone with the new minions.
Here are my thoughts on some of the new cards I've tried out:
Spirit of the Rhino: I'm always happy when this is down, particularly when it is behind a taunt. However, I've only been running one as it sucks when you're in topdeck mode. I always feel like I'm low on cards so I don't know if a second copy is worth running. I try to save this for a combo with Akali or Amani Warbears so dropping it T6/T7 is not a bad plan.
Akali, the Rhino: This effect is absolutely amazing and I've been able to activate it a number of times. She's only ever survived for a second hit once so I can't say for sure whether the effect is worth the associated cost and activation limitation (overkill on 5 isn't always easy) but I want to work around using her regardless.
Oondasta: This card has been a huge disappointment unfortunately. Most of the time I don't even have a beast to pull or the trade I'm making is inefficient so it would almost make as much sense to just play whatever it's pulling. I may be proven wrong, but this card is actually not that great of an addition. I've added one Direhorn Hatchling for synergy and may put in another.
Amani War Bear: A cool addition to rush decks. I like that it's a defensive tool and it's great when it comes down after a Spirit on T6. Another pull from Oondasta so it's nice to include in that package.
Other than that, I've been toying with all sorts of one-ofs from Battle Rage to Warpath to Acolyte to Execute. I feel like I still need to work on the ratios with these cards but staples like Countess Ashmore, Zilliax and Darius Crowley have fit really well into the deck. I'm still trying to decide on whether to use Scourgelord Garrosh for extra pressure due to the weapon and damage activators or Dr. Boom for the added value.
What thoughts do others have? I'm open to any suggestions for any type of rush deck. I've linked my deck below if anyone wants to give some thoughts on refinement.

i got two legendaries form the 10 packs...dusted the entire lot and got almost 1400 dust for 4.99 amazing...
seriously who gives a shit about a pity timer? I average 1.5 legendaries out of 20 packs. how the fuck can everybody not get any legendaries for god sake. In 10 packs I got 2 and 4 epics and some golden duplicates....pretty normal pack opening for me. The last time i was truly amazed at luck was when I got a golden legendary an epic a non-gold legendary and a rare all in the same pack. I screenshot that one. As far as pack opening goes that really is the only thing that even makes me say wow what are the odds... If i buy 40 packs I get 2-3 legendaries every fucking time
as far as the dragon goes check your collection its in there do a search for "new"
